Stanley Hotel

"When we arrived, they were just getting ready to close for the season, and we found ourselves the only guests in the place - with all those long, empty corridors," he recalled. "By the time I went to bed that night, I had the whole book in my mind." On the Stanley's Ghost & History Tour, experience it for yourself. See room #217, where the creation of The Shining began, hear stories of ghost sightings in the hotel's most haunted rooms, and take a tour through the underground tunnel!
